i haven’t posted about cogeco in a while, so i must be overdue

so, for a complete change of pace, my cogeco has been acting up a whole lot over the last few days. i decided to give them a call yet again (i think that’s 4 calls since last friday, if you’re keeping score at home – the last one was my favourite, involving the guy telling me my modem was online when it clearly wasn’t) mainly because i’m a glutton for punishment. tonight’s first level technician tried to tell me repeatedly that the problem HAD to be my modem. i was quite insistent that it probably WASN’T (“can you give me a reason that my connectivity has died the last 3 nights at 8:30 if it’s my modem? no? i didn’t think so…”) he was very reluctant to pass me onto 2nd level (“but sir, 2nd level confirms that it has to be a problem with your modem…” “are you telling me i can’t talk to 2nd level?”) anyway, my 2nd level tech told me that i had a problem with my line…nothing to do with my modem, as predicted. in summary, chumptastic may be hiccuppy during prime time for the next few nights until i can get a service visit.

in other news, moneen and some other bands are playing at smijies tomorrow night. that’s right. smijies. the bar where every beer comes with a free bar fight. poor moneen.

    I was disappointed to see “in other news, moneen and some other bands are playing at smijies tomorrow night. that’s right. smijies. the bar where every beer comes with a free bar fight. poor moneen.” Whoever wrote this definitely hasn’t been to Smijies this year!! Smijies is the place to be, just ask any Queens student. The only fighting you’ll see is in the line-up to get into the bar!!!

    queen’s students also line up to get into such places as stages and peel. does that make them good?

    as an aside, i find it interesting that chumptastic is suddenly being used as a venue for self promotion. first the radical dudez, and now the smijies owner? who should i make fun of next?

    I’ve been going to Smijies for years and this is the best year so far. They have done a good job cleaning the place up, so try to appreciate that!! This has nothing to do with promoting Smijies, You shouldn’t make comments about something when you don’t know the truth. My point was come down and check Smijies out and you’ll see that your comments were not appropriate!!

    you’re right, comments on my blog expressing my opinions aren’t appropriate. and if “smijies is the place to be” isn’t promotion, what is it?

    anyway, i do hope that people come here for the last say on which bars in kingston they should go to – it only makes sense.
